Joining the list of B-Towners who are currently in self-isolation amid the global outbreak of COVID-19, love birds Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have also decided to stay at home, doing their bit to help prevent the possible spread of Coronavirus. The couple also appealed people to stay at home and practice social distancing.

In a video shared by the cricketer-actor couple today, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma informed that they are at home quarantine. They also appealed their fans to stay at home to keep themselves as well as others safe in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We know we are all going through a very difficult time and the only way to stop this spread of Coronavirus is by acting together. We are staying at home for our safety and for everyone else as well,” said Virat and Anushka.

“You should do it too to prevent the further spread of the virus. Let’s make it safe for us and everyone else by self-isolation. Stay home and stay healthy,” wished the cricketer-actress couple.

On Thursday, Bollywood star Kartik Aaryan took to social media to deliver a 'PyaarKaPunchnaama' style monologue about the importance of social distancing in fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

Though Aaryan was not the only celebrity to talk about being cautious against Coronavirus, he stood out with his style.

The actor, who shot to fame with his monologues, appealed his fans to pay heed to the advice of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who during an address to the nation on Thursday evening urged people to stay at home.

The target of the actor's monologue were people who are treating social distancing and work from home as an excuse to mingle with others.

"It's not the summer holidays, have some shame. IPL, NBA, Premier League, schools, colleges, everything is closed. Movie releases have been postponed, but you won't stop," Kartik said in his monologue.

Aaryan said one should be ready as the virus spread could get bigger in the coming days. He also asked people to at least take American immunologist, Anthony Fauci, seriously, who has advised people to stay at home.

"Don't party, don't travel or meet people, do Netflix, work from home, spend time with parents and trust each other" added the actor.

Other celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan, Karan Johar, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan also took to social media to applaud Prime Minister's statement on Janta Curfew on Sunday.

"I applaud all fellow countrymen who work tirelessly to keep the essential services operational in such extenuating circumstances ..BE ONE, BE SAFE, BE IN PRECAUTION!," megastar Bachchan tweeted.

"Fellow Indians, Namaskar. A short while ago, Our PM Saab, Modiji, requested all of us to show resolve & restraint in the face of COVID-19. Please also adhere to the Janta Curfew on 22nd March by staying home. Stay Safe @PMOIndia @narendramodi #JantaCurfew," Ajay Devgn tweeted.

"The assuring words & calm demeanor of our leader honourable PM @narendramodiJi gave me comfort. I pledge to follow your instructions Sir, and my respect to all the silent heroes for their relentless work in public interest," said Hrithik.

Akshay, whose film "Sooryavanshi"' has been pushed due to the coronavirus scare, also hailed the PM's speech.

An excellent initiative by PM @narendramodiji...this Sunday, March 22 from 7 am to 9 pm let's all join in the #JantaCurfew and show the world we are together in this. #SocialDistancing," he wrote.
